    Pros

    Sprint has a culture of internal promotion and advancement. From day one it's very clear how you can advance to the next level in your career. Pay is very, very competitive and management negotiates with HR on your behalf for raises and the like. You can have a great sales career at Sprint with the right manager and market.

    Cons

    Sprint is suffering some major brand perception challenges that makes winning new accounts uncontrollably difficult. On top of poor perception is actual poor product performance (in some areas). On the business side you're selling the network. Sprint has been consistently rated on the bottom in terms of performance so it seems like you're constantly just selling bottom dollar.

    From a career standpoint, you hit a ceiling for advancement if you don't want to go into management. (AE1 > AE2 > ???) Some have spent years in the same role. If management is your thing you can easily leverage decent sales performance to hurdle into a a management role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The internal promotion and recognition gets out of hand sometimes. People get caught doing things not because it's what's best but because of wanting to be on some committee or recognition board. Focus on results and move on.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sprint.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very simple. I was interviewed by one man and one woman.
    They confirmed I was qualified; however, nearly their entire staff was male, and her boss had been pushing her to hire more women.
